    Episode 306: Author Claude Berube on his next book; Syren's Song

    in Military

    This Sunday for the full hour our guest will be author Claude Berube to discuss his second Connor Stark novel, Syren's Song, from Naval Institute Press. From the Amazon page;

    "Syren's Song is the second novel featuring Connor Stark, and it promises to be just as engaging asThe Aden Effect. This geopolitical thriller begins when the Sri Lankan navy is unexpectedly attacked by a resurgent and separatist Tamil Tiger organization. The government issues a letter of marque to former U.S. Navy officer Connor Stark, now the head of the private security company Highland Maritime Defense. Stark and his eclectic compatriots accept the challenge only to learn that the Sea Tigers who crippled the Sri Lankan navy are no ordinary terrorists."

    We will also discuss the craft of writing, how emerging real world events can influence the writing of fiction, and as we usually do with Claude, perhaps some other interestiing topics that crop up in the course of our conversation.

    Quetzalcoatl will have knowledge superior to the imagination of even the highest I.Q., because he will explain formula’s involving both DNA + Metabolic Reactions that produce phenomena’s with Visual-Telekinesis with animalia. He will have the knowledge to deliver reincarnation without Death; moreover, he will explain wisdom involving the creation of Gold, that even the Egyptians labored to great extents over thousands of years via their construction with Pyramids to engineer with Alchemy. 
    He will have the right granted by the Creator of the Heavens, to perform miracles in the Ocean so that the theories of time-travel & Einstein will be shown as correct. Moreover, he will grant new lives to paraplegics, by allowing their imaginations and cognitive functions to go hand-and-hand with a flock of Eagles, via the telekinetic circuit of Electrogenesis. 
    The blood of Quetzalcoatl will be immune to Tuberculosis, Herpes, and all STD’s that were created as a result of the maritime dormitation with rodents across the Atlantic. He will reveal the truth about AIDS; which is a cognitive program created as a result of fear & annexation from Colonialism, rather than a blood disease

    Neoliberalism, Imperialism and Urban Development pt. 2

    in History

    In 2004, an agreement was reached between the United States and South Korean governments to relocate the United States Forces Korea from the heart of Seoul to Camp Humphreys, outside the mid-sized city of Pyeongtaek, and to a second major garrison outside of Daegu 

    The process, scheduled to be completed next year, will consolidate more than 28,000 troops into two regional hubs and will transform Camp Humphreys into the largest U.S. Army garrison in Asia.

    As the population of the garisson increases from 12,000 Soldiers, Family Members and contractors to 37,000 in 2016, the city of Pyeongtaek, in co-operation with the central South Korean government, have developed ambitious plans. 

    These include a major Samsung semiconductor chip plant, the world’s largest fuel cell power plant, an expanded maritime port, a free economic zone as well as tens of thousands of new housing developments. 

    UC Berkley’s Bridget Martin is researching the links between Militarism and Urbanization in South Korea. In the second of our two-part conversation, she talks about the intensity of South Korean urban redevelopment, the goals behind USFK base consolidation and restructuring and the historical relationship between American military bases and South Korean society.
